The Road Before & After Surgery
January 13, 2018
I'm In A Really Good Place Right Now! :)
Mood:  cheeky
Now Playing: Day 2930-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


While the three feline supervisors are busy keeping a close eye on Eric shoveling the snow and ice... I am busy being in a really good place right now!

Not emotionally or spiritually.

Just on my couchbed with cutie patootie Babyblue by my side. Or... maybe more like... right in front of my face! Hehehehehe! Such a cutie!!

What I really think we all need right now is more beautiful, magical, most wonderful... SNOW! They are already predicting more snow for early next week. Monday can't get here soon enough! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, L-O-V-E snow! A few friends of ours have made comments over the past few days regarding upcoming snow-less winters out west. Nah! There's plenty of mountains that will be surrounding us with a mere day drive to a high enough altitude to see all the beautiful snow! Nevada isn't just known for the dry desert. There is so much more just waiting to be explored! Plenty of photo opportunities to share which means needing to get back to learning the ropes with my drone. Without poking anyone's eyes out! Hahahahahaha! Eric's first take-off and landing of the drone...  PRICELESS!

Lately with both surgeries and the need to get lots of rest for a smooth recovery. We really haven't been doing much, but taking it easy around the house. My facial bruising and swelling is almost completely gone, thank goodness! I still have a ways to go with 3-4 months of post-operative healing that can't be seen visually on the outside of my face. But so far... I have done one hell of a job with recovery! This gal also not only endured the pain. But as well only took a mere 1/2 pill of the prescribed narcotics from both surgeries. I look at this as a really big opportunity to continue building up my anything-but-normal, high tolerance for pain. I also like to be able to feel if there is a surgical complication that I am experiencing, instead of numbing things to the point of feeling nothing at all. I wouldn't suggest going with no pain medication to most folks after any type of surgical procedure But then again... I am not like most folks.

At the end of the day. Not only am I in a really good place right now. But I have proved once again, that I really can take on the world! Well... at least parts of this world. Hehehehehehe!

My next feat?

Getting my walking back on at our local trails. I need to build some muscle back, along with some weight! Where there is a will... there will always be a way!

Some times... a silly way... but a way! Hehehehehehe!
